 The Mills Condos for Sale & Recently Sold

David’s view on The Mills Condos San Diego.

Prices at the Mills have never been lower than what they are right now.   Channel 4 news just stated that the prices in Downtown San Diego properties are going up and expected to rise at least 3.5% this year.  Newspaper articles have stated that downtown San Diego properties are one of only four cities where the property values are on the rise.  With the Mills being a Mid Rise Downtown Condo close to local parks,freeway access and low HOA’s, I would say that the Mills at Cortez Hill is an excellent buy for the dollar value. 

 Keep in mind that if you buy on the east side of the building you will pick up the freeway noise.  And any time you want to go dinner, a play, night clubbing or a function downtown you will have to drive and contend with parking.
